Are odour regualtions the next big municipal regulation? With more and more composting programs, it seems like a likely possibility. Our friends at ODOTech just wrote a great blog post on the recent Odor by-law in Boucherville, QC. This By-Law outlines strict limits for odor emissions from facilities, it remains to be seen if they enforce it and if the limits are reasonable. But, my intuition is that more and more cities will be putting in place limits for odour, just as cities already have noise limits.
